Re: Third Nolan Batman film title announced!

Caped Crusader is another name for Batman, yes. But Dark Knight Rises actually seems like it'll have something to do with the theme of the movie. Just like the Dark Knight in the last movie got to have that Harvey Dent symbolism (the White Knight/Dark Knight thing). He's the caped crusader because he constantly fights for justice and, err, he has a cape. Yes, it's less repetitive, but it doesn't add anything else.

The TV series
I catch the old series on TVLand all the time.
That's great if you do. Still shouldn't be a deterrent to naming A movie Caped Crusader, 50yrs later reruns or not.
But TVLand doesn't list Batman in their shows listing.
It's on a new channel called "The Hub" and they look really terrific on digitial TV.

Moviehole reports that Nolan is currently looking for the film's female lead.

Re: Third Nolan Batman film title announced!

Yes I agree that the title has something to do with the theme of the film that Nolan wants to explore. "Batman Begins" had the obvious theme of a beginning, Bruce's journey into becoming Batman, while "The Dark Knight" was his descent into darkness and madness and the acknowledgment that sacrifice was needed in order to accomplish the things he needs to do as Batman in his ongoing war on crime. I assume the third, "The Dark Knight Rises" will touch on Bruce coming out of the darkness and embracing his role as Batman and completing the movie trilogy's cycle.


@Pyscho Pare yes this was reported last week...and there are heavy rumors that Talia will be in the movie.

Maybe it'll be about Batman getting a jet pack?

Maybe he's just horny the entire movie.

How about Stana Katic for Talia? She's already voicing the part for Arkham City.

It sucks that Joel Schumacher already used the Batman Forever title for his crapply movie. That would have been the perfect title for this.

Ah, okay. I missed that post, then! Talia would make sense, bringing the Nolan films full circle.

Re: Third Nolan Batman film title announced!

My personal pic for Taila would be Emily Blunt but since she was already heavily rumored earlier in the year for Selena I doubt she'll be considered. She's also passed on previous comic book role offers so it's possible she's not interested in doing a comic book movie.

I honestly have trouble imagining an actor who would turn down a role from Chris Nolan in his sequel to The Dark Knight. Not after the money and buzz and awards and all that it won.

Short of Bob Redford or some such.

Certainly no young non-40 year veteran actor would be dumb enough, not post-TDK. Pre TDK? OK, sure. Post? You'd have to be brain-dead.

Nolan is probably too polite to say that Riddler is an exceedingly lame and unthreatening villain.
Not if Nolan did him.

Play him in the same vein as Joker, only less chaotic and more conspiratorial and smarter. He's less about violence and shock and more about secrets and lies and knowledge = power. He's the only man in the world who sees that something is wrong with the story of Batman killing people and Harvey Dent as a martyr. He sees puzzles and riddles and encryption on a genius scale, and two and two equal five for this story.

Make him about knowing the truth to blackmail the Bat, or exposing it out of a twisted sense of justice; but born of his megalomania and arrogance that he's smarter than the world and Batman.

It's a moot point. But it could be done properly. He could re-invent the guy from a silly trickster with a green suit and question marks and word puzzles, to a real super-intellect conspiracy nut.

Re: Third Nolan Batman film title announced!

I don't think she'd refuse a role in a Nolan movie either. Just saying though that she has turned down previous big roles.

I agree that Shadow of the Bat would be a much better name, though.
Well, in B:TAS that was the name of the story that introduced Batgirl, so it seems weird to me if applied to a solo Batman story with no sidekick involved.
Yes, but it was also the title of a comic series that ran from 1992 to 2000.

I think the film needs something more than Batman vs. villain. Riddler is too similar in the public consciousness to the Joker...
I can testify from personal experience that this is true. I dressed up as the Riddler last Halloween (photo link), and a good 30% of the people who called out to me when I was marching in the NYC Village Halloween parade called me the Joker.
